Boston University School of Medicine researchers have identified several new genes associated with Alzheimer's disease, including some which may cause functional and structural alterations in the brain. The findings could help to shed light on the processes leading up to the development of the neurodegenerative disease.
Researchers have identified a gene variant linked to psychotic symptoms and cognitive impairment in people with bipolar disorder.
According to researchers, Alzheimer's disease may be more prevalent in women, not simply because they live longer on average, but due to the APOE E4 gene. Researchers found the APOE association was greater for women in the Tau pathway than in men. However, there was no difference between APOE expression in the amyloid pathway in women compared to men.
Ceramide exposure impairs the ability for neurons to make energy by directly damaging mitochondria. Additionally, ceramides force neurons to rapidly uptake glucose in order to provide cellular energy.
According to a new study, sleeping on your side helps the clear the brain of some neurotoxins, like amyloid beta, and could potentially reduce risk for developing some neurodegenerative disorders.
A new study points to a newly discovered system in which the brain removed waste as a potential new tool to treat neurodegenerative disorders.
Researchers have discovered an early immune response in people with a genetic predisposition to Alzheimer's disease.
A new study reports a subset of patients, the HIV virus started to replicate in the brain within the first four months of infection.
Amyloid beta pathology may be more versatile than previously thought, a new study reports.
